Sixty Florida A&M University (FAMU) scholars joined the fellowship of Alpha Kappa Mu National Honor Society.
Chapter Adviser and National President Veronica Yon, Ph.D., presided over the virtual program on January 27 with the assistance of the following student officers: Jorge Del’Angel, president of Orrville, Alabama; Timia Williams, vice president of Atlanta; Hashanna Jallow, secretary of Tallahassee; Jada Hoyle-Gardner, public relations liaison of Irvington, N.J.; and Maya Hughes, assistant public relations liaison.
More than 300 family, friends, faculty, and staff logged on to celebrate the chapter’s newest members, who include 15 graduate students, 23 seniors, and 22 juniors of varying majors.
During his remarks, Theophilus Boyd IV, a former president of the society’s Kappa Iota (FAMU) chapter and 1993 business administration alumnus, referred to Alpha Kappa Mu as a “real beacon.”
“It was the most prestigious honor society on Florida A&M’s campus when I was at FAMU, and it continues to be,” said Boyd, who works for Newport Healthcare in Tennessee. He offered appreciation and encouragement. “Thank you so much for your service. Thank you so much for your scholarship. Bigger and even better things await you once you go past the doors of Florida A&M, and it only gets better from here.”
